Science Guy upsets families with a trivial factMikey 10 comments
This one is interesting. Bill Nye, also known as 'The Science Guy', has offended a small group of adults during his presentation.
While discussing global warming, Mars exploration, and energy consumption, the topic of Genesis 1:16 came up which reads: "God made two great lights...the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night..." Nye commented the moon doesn't actually emit any light of it's own, but rather reflect the lights it receives from the sun.
Some people left in a huff at the suggestion, including one woman who yelled 'we believe in god' while walking out with her three children.
Though the offended people were surely in a minority, I find it amazing there are still some people who don't understand or believe such a trivial celestial fact.
